“With great power comes great responsibility.”
Among those who practice law, as in every calling, there are good ones and unfortunately, there are bad ones. Lawyers have a duty to their clients. When they fail in that duty, they are responsible for the harm they do to their clients.
Lawyers can fail to uphold their duties to their clients in a variety of ways including:
- Lack of competence in the area of law
- Failure to meet court deadlines
- Ethics violations
- Conflicts of interest
- Failure to know the law
- Inadequate investigations
- Statute of Limitations lapse
- Substance abuse issues
- Misappropriation of client funds
